Prime Minister Blair Eligible For Up to 13 Weeks Paternity Leave

Mark sent me this article from BBC News and writes "With the arrival of a new baby in the home of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, there is talk of how much of the nation's new 13-week unpaid paternity leave he will take. The article mentions that Britain, though ahead of the US, still lags far behind other industrialized nations in the amount of leave that fathers may take. In Sweden and Japan, the leave (up to 450 days) is completely transferable between the parents and up to 85% of the income is to be paid."Source: BBC [UK network]
